When a family pulls out the Christmas ornaments, something magical happens. Children who can’t seem to get along any other time of the year suddenly work together opening boxes, taking turns on the stepladder and handing each other ornament hooks. It turns into a family affair—creating an annual work of art that everyone can enjoy and admire.
For many of us, part of the Christmas tradition is giving each child an ornament every year. But as kids get older, it’s hard to remember the story behind each and every ornament. If you can relate, try making an ornament book this year. It will give your kids a way to remember Christmases past and provide some history for future kids and grandkids.

How you make this book is up to you—you can devote each page to a single ornament or create a page for each year. With our printables (designed to fit 4-by-6-inch photo sleeves), your pictures and some good penmanship (or at least readable)—you can start documenting the stories behind, or rather on, your Christmas tree.
